Guitar Wall Mount Systems
Guitar wall systems are the typical go-to for the musician with many guitars, it's a simple way to consolidate your storage issues into one simple solution. These systems make it easy to store and display the spectrum of instruments in your music room for your guests or bandmates to marvel upon. However, guitar wall-rack systems are usually semi-permanent solutions to storage and lack the freedom to reposition or relocate.
Drawbacks to Guitar Wall Racks
These systems are installed at about eye level, or slightly higher, for an ergonomic storage solution that can be modified to suit any and all heights. They're largely inexpensive, but there are drawbacks to such a system. Typically, they require two mounting screws, drilled into a mount that is also mounted to a wall. The mounts are tightly fastened into the studs to withstand the weight of multiple guitars. This makes it difficult to reposition the system or move it. Another major drawback is a simple one: they just don't look cool. Guitar wall mount systems don't have the flair and edge a guitarist needs in their music room, that expressive flash of color that represents the musician's inner fire.
Easy Solution to the Guitar Wall Stand
GuitarGrip has a solution to the wall mount system predicament. GuitarGrips are mounted directly to the wall, using a simple one screw system that's easy to install and relocate. Their low profile makes it easy to mount alongside one another, and they come in a wide spectrum of colors, so you can show off all those sick guitars in your studio or music room with style and ease.
Guitar Hooks have always remained something of a standard for upgrading the storage of your guitar. Off the ground and displayed on high, a guitar wall hook is a reliable solution to the problem of not only storage, but presentation too. But what happens when your hook just lacks a certain luster that your guitar simply radiates? Well, the answer is quite simple: GuitarGrips.
Replace Those Guitar Hooks
GuitarGrip guitar hangers are a unique and stylish alternative to storing and presenting your guitar or bass with all the pride and joy of a Stevie Ray Vaughn song. You practice intensely to master those strings, so let the instrument exude the same passion and determination you have for playing it. A standard guitar hook just doesn't fit the musician's passion and dedication, it more or less groans vanilla boredom. Ignite the walls of your music room and replace your guitar hooks with any one of GuitarGrips' signature models, to set the room ablaze with more than just your incendiary fretwork.
Consider this room here:
This is a stylish and inspiring space that cultivates musical creativity. It's a bold, contemporary vintage aesthetic, reminiscent of the British Invasion. It's a lovely space, but it could radiate the edge and attitude the style demands by tweaking one or three simple elements: the guitar hooks. These frames make for an elegant way to hang these guitars, but the rigging up a trio of our subtle yet grungy Antique Coppers would reverberate with heavy metal fury.
GuitarGrips are a simple, minimalistic addition to any music room or studio and make superb guitar hook replacements.
It’s often said that shifts in music are measured in decades. While bands of the late 80’s, spider tapping their medieval armament shaped guitars, struggled to stay relevant, the MTV series “Unplugged”, brought a renewed focus on the acoustic guitar, an adoration not seen since the 70’s. Since then, acoustic instruments such as the banjo, ukulele, and acoustic bass continue to gain center stage. Acoustic Instruments can adorn any living space. How does yours hang? Do you use a case, guitar stand, or a guitar hanger for your acoustic?
Hanging your Acoustic Guitar
Even those not musically inclined can agree, acoustic instruments carry a certain beauty. They’re primitive, almost timeless, the craftsmanship strewn through every curve and grain. While acoustic instruments definitely need extra love and care, they can make a charming addition to any home or music studio.
When choosing were to place your acoustic instrument, consider a guitar hanger over an acoustic guitar stand. Acoustic guitar stands can leave your instrument vulnerable to small children, and pets. Likewise, stands take up valuable floor space.

Caring for Acoustic Guitars
Acoustic guitars require special, humidity controlled storage to preserve their sound and structural integrity. The hypothesis that guitars perform better when dry is a myth and actually compromises not only the incrementally expensive acoustic guitar, but also the warm, soft tones it produces.
Wood is hygroscopic, meaning it relinquishes and absorbs moisture. Fine acoustic guitars are typically constructed using strips of wood, glued together, making them susceptible to humidity and temperature.
A few ways humidity and temperature affects acoustics:
- High temps weaken glue
- High humidity causes swelling and expansion
- Low humidity causes shrinking and cracking
- Radical changes in temperature can also cause detrimental expansion, contraction, and separation of essential components
To prolong the life of the acoustic guitar, there are a few ways to ensure good acoustic health.
Start by storing the instrument in a case with nominal air access during dry seasons.
Utilize environmental control systems, air conditioners, humidifiers, space heaters, and plants to help regulate temperature and humidity.
During the driest seasons of the year, take the guitar off the acoustic guitar stand or off the guitar hook and store it in a case.
However, if you want to keep it on display on a guitar stand or guitar hanger, you may want to employ the use of a guitar humidifier. You can get one that pros use, for real cheap. Follow this link from Reverb.com for awesome deals on humidification systems specifically designed for acoustic guitars.
Acoustic Guitar Stand or Guitar Hook
In a properly controlled environment, acoustic guitars can be displayed all year round, free from the confines of a case. If you're planning on taking these precautions to ensure the longevity of your acoustic guitar, hanging it from a stylish GuitarGrip guitar hanger is a guaranteed elegant presentation solution. You'll be keeping it free from the dangers of rowdy kids, curious pets, and the occasional inebriated guest.
